Long Necks on Short Cuts

Out this way driving on back roads happens frequently in order to avoid the main roads used by commuters.  Short cuts never cease to amaze me because there always seems to be something new popping up along the way to my friend's house for instance.

The other day, driving along the river, as I rounded the bend, a huge white bird was crossing the road.   Taking these pix with my cell, I'm still wondering what it is.  Do you think it's a turkey?

I know this is a peacock as are the next shots.  They followed the white bird across the road as I sat patiently in the car with the hazard lights on.  Walking down the driveway from a house up on the hill, they are all domestic birds.  As they disappeared down the bank toward the river hoped I would see them again and continued on to Carol's.

seeing, saying, and sharing...

Could the white bird be a female peacock? This is what I love about being out in Nature - you never know what you are going to see - right place, right time, you know? But you'll never see it if you're not out there!!!

Neat sighting of the peacocks. I think the white one is either a young peacock or a female. Happy Thursday, enjoy your day!
Lovely pictures …

All the best Jan

I have never seen a bird like that before. It is strange seeing things you have never seen before. I like taking back roads at times. Blessings to you and your husband, xoxo, Susie
